Thats right..i said it

If their controlled detonation was designed to disable the on-site device, it could be that they were dealing with one that had a chemical mix that had to be combined to cause an explosion. If the two chemicals don't get mixed, then there's no bang.
Same goes if the trigger was mechanical and they could destroy it before it could activate and detonate the device.
